Jobs4Bahrainis joins hands with YAL
Manama, November 14, 2010
Jobs4Bahrainis.com, the first private sector initiative dedicated to improving the job prospects of Bahraini nationals, has partnered with the Young Arab Leaders (YAL) Global Entrepreneurship Week 2010 initiative in the kingdom.
Jobs4Bahrainis is a joint venture between Gulf Connexions, the Kingdom’s leading recruitment company and Al Hilal Group, a leading regional publishing organisation.
Global Entrepreneurship Week 2010 is an international initiative that introduces entrepreneurship to young people around the world.
In Bahrain it will be held from November 21 to 27 and will be organised by the Bahrain chapter of the Young Arab Leaders, an independent not-for-profit organisation focused on the twin pillars of education and entrepreneurship.
YAL Bahrain Chapter was officially launched in November 2005 by His Royal Highness Prince Salman Bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander.
The week-long initiative will consist of a series of events that support YAL’s aim to create a culture of entrepreneurship in the Arab world. The events will help to shed light on local business success stories, and connect aspiring business owners with potential mentors.
Under the national partnership agreement, Jobs4Bahrainis.com will support entrepreneurs participating in Global Entrepreneurship Week 2010 in Bahrain by offering complimentary recruitment services to help grow their businesses.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com business development manager Ali Daylami said: 'We are proud to support this important YAL initiative, which is dedicated to empowering young Arabs and offering a brighter future for individuals and society.'
'Jobs4Bahrainis.com is honoured to play a part in this process by extending our services to ambitious Bahraini entrepreneurs and helping them find suitable talent for their businesses,' he added.
YAL executive manager Mariam Al-Mannai said: 'One of the key challenges facing Bahrain, as with other Arab countries with young, rapidly-growing populations, is to create jobs and absorb the annual influx of new graduates to the jobs market.'
'By encouraging entrepreneurship, YAL aims to shed light on the job opportunities entrepreneurs create within their communities, and to this end we value the support of Jobs4Bahrainis.com, which we trust will motive more young entrepreneurs in Bahrain to realise their business ambitions,' he explained.-TradeArabia News Service
